"he played with all kinds of people even after he started his own thing..."

Very true; in fact he probably jammed with more people after the Experience formed than before. (More famous people, anyway.)
I was just speaking loosely about the R&B guys in particular - a lot of the well-known black acts that Jimi anonymously backed.
And even then, he still (much to his regret) recorded with Curtis Knight again in '67, and there might have been other reunions I'm forgetting.
After '66, though, he generally played with rock & blues players, not people on the old R&B scene.

If you liked that Generation Club jam with BB King, I think you'd like the 3/17/68 Cafe a Go Go jams (again with some Paul Butterfield Band guys) - it was on a boot CD called "Blues at Midnight." Lots more blues, and an amazing instrumental Little Wing jam:

Wow - thanks for the heads up on that one LIA!! Jeezus man, I had no idea this one existed - shit you got Brooks on Bass and Rich on keys, hell, you got the better part of Electric Flag there. Right up my alley. Very Nice.
